Earlier today, Charlotte's Kasia Faryna introduced herself to Squeeze readers with a story about finding a different way to give after being laid off from a non-profit.
Kasia is a public affairs volunteer for the American Red Cross of Cabarrus County. "I felt obligated to find a new way to give back," she wrote.
Our Question of the Day: Has the recession caused you to cut back on giving? Answer over to the right, then come back and discuss, if you'd like.
Last night's results: We asked how long you could pay your bills if you lost your job tomorrow. There was no clear trend - 26 percent of respondents said six months or more, with 25 percent saying one month or more, 24 percent saying more than a year, and 23 percent saying less than one month.
